Viva Las Vegas: A Family Vacation for Comox Couple After Scoring $100K Scratch & Win Prize

August 21, 2023


Natasha Kristensen and Jacob Lamarsh can’t wait to treat their children to a vacation in Vegas after discovering they won the top prize of $100,000 from a Jaws Scratch & Win ticket. 

Lamarsh picked up the ticket on a whim as a treat for Kristensen while at the Petro Canada on Anderson Road in Comox and was at home relaxing when he discovered they won.

“It was late at night and I was watching TV and decided to scan it on my Lotto! App,” Lamarsh recalled. “I saw we won and I woke everyone up to tell them!”

After telling immediate family, Kristensen shared the news with her colleagues at work.

“There was a lot of screaming and high-fives,” she said.

In addition to a Vegas vacation, the Comox residents plan to treat their kids to a shopping spree, thanks to their prize.
